Ongoing projects

We constantly have some sort of project that we are working on. Recently Jason has felt the urge to work outside. So here is the most recent outside project.

When we bought the house there was a sort of rock garden in front of our house. Jason got sick of looking at the rocks and decided to take them out. It really wasnt to bad until we got to this rock. It took about 2 hours just to get this big granite rock out. It was much bigger than we had ancticipated. Jason eventually hooked it with rope and towed it across the driveway with the van.

Here's Adam trying to help daddy get the rock out.

Here are some finished pictures of the landscape outside. It looks so much nicer.

Here is the latest inside project. The 2nd full bath in the house was the worst by far. Covered with wall paper that was water stained and halfway peeling off the wall. The floor was laminate tile that was laid poorly and was coming up at almost every seam. We decided to gut the bathroom and retile. We retiled the floor and half the wall with Porcelain tile. It still isn't quite done but looks so much nicer than before. These pictures are backwards but you get the picture.

Wow Les! The house is looking GREAT! I guess I should include Jason-ha. Seriously had to have a strong and smart man to get all of those rocks! Good work. We're excited to see your cute kiddies soon!
